This lovely lady is the brave and pioneering investigative journalist Nellie Bly. Bly (born Elizabeth Cochran) began her career in journalism in the late nineteenth century by adopting a pen name and launching into a new kind of investigative journalism in which she championed the poor and disenfranchised. Defying sexism and poor opportunities for young women at every turn, Bly gained fame and recognition by her distinctly empathetic and critical writing style and her willingness to undergo intense undercover investigations in order to expose corruption and its effects on the nation’s underprivileged. Her biggest story was her first assignment for Joe Pulitzer’s the “New York World”, where she posed as a mad woman in a mental asylum in order to expose the horrendous conditions and cruelty the inmates suffered. As if her continued, life-long career of advocacy wasn’t enough, this incredible woman embarked on a world trip in 1889, in order to beat the record set by Jules verne’s Around the World in 80 Days, which she finally did, arriving back in New York City after 72 days. You wish you were this cool.

Turn Back The Century – 1912 (Part One)
TURN BACK THE CLOCK… The Giants and Cubs wore replica uniforms from 1912 today… Some elements from today’s turn back the century game include:
• The scoreboard had a vintage look and videos were not shown.
• There was a roving barber shop quartets outside the gates.
• Giants photographers, ushers, security guards, grounds keepers and other staff wore 1912 era garb.
• Only organ music was played the entire game.

I’ve decided that the movie Mulan is basically Arya Stark
HIT-GIRL - The variant cover for the first issue of Hit-Girl from Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. This was one of those assignments where I would have paid THEM to work on it. Inspired by Game of Thrones, an early sketch had an impaled Joffrey-like head on the ground :)
